Lung cancer screenings save lives

Posted at 12:21 PM, Nov 13, 2020

RICHMOND, Va. - November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month and there’s no better time to plan a screening. Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of both men and women, not only in Virginia, but also in the nation and across the world. Each year, lung cancer claims the lives of more men and women than all of the cases of breast, colon, prostate and kidney cancers combined.

Dr. Mark Parker, director of the Lung Cancer Screening Program at VCU Health, and Michelle Futrell, lung cancer screening nurse navigator and program coordinator at VCU Health, tell us everything you need to know about lung cancer screenings.

For more information about the VCU Health Lung Cancer Screening Program, visit their location at 9000 Stony Point Parkway in Richmond. You can also visit their website, Facebook, Instagram or give them a call at 804-827-LUNG (5864).
